Best Black Bean Brownies

| Cakes, Cupcakes & Baked Goods, Dessert, Ice Cream and Candies, Uncategorized

Through the years I have tried several black bean brownie recipes and been terribly disappointed with all of them.  Most the posters said that you would never guess that the recipe contained beans, but I could always taste them!  Even if the taste was subtle – it was still there!

One of my favourite vegan bloggers – Chocolate Covered Katie – posted her version of black bean brownies and I knew I just had to try them….  They are amazing!  The taste is lovely and they are extremely moist.  You MUST use the chocolate chips (as she says in the recipe) and I suggest warming them up in the microwave before serving – just for 10-20 seconds so that the chips can melt a bit.  I served this to a bunch of non-vegans (including my husband) and none of them guessed the secret ingredient!

It is such a quick recipe if using canned black beans that you can throw it together in 5 minutes.  The only essential piece of equipment is a good food processor.

Go make it now!

    Can’t wait to try it!
    Here’s the link to the cauliflower one I was telling you about (from another gluten-free vegan blogger you’ll love, I think). Haven’t tried it yet and you seem to get to experimenting-with-the-weird-and-wacky faster than I do, so I’m sure you’ll get to it before I do. Hope it’s lekker. Smooches, R

    Just an update on the url you were looking for. The one I posted above seems to be correct to get to her brownie recipe (when I click on it at least), but here’s one that takes you to the same site, but her GALLERY page. Won’t you let me know if you still battle to get to the right page. Smooches.

    And THIS takes one to her deserts – something I know is close to your heart – hehehe

    You’ll HAVE TO blog about the sweet potato brownie! FABULOUS. What a wonderful world we live in where a brownie is a vegetable!!! Why aren’t we taught this stuff at school? Why isn’t it mandatory for EVERYONE to know about veggie- and fruit-based treats!!!?? I’m going to start a movement of some sort!!!… hehehe. Thanks again, we’re sharing the last one tonight. Mxua

        …love that this wish had such power….!!!! Thanks for adding the info about the type and amount of sweet potato – makes for far less guess-work and/or frustration in the kitchen. Thanks, T. Mxua
